New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
41 Jehoshaphat son of Asa began to rule over Judah in the fourth year of King Ahab's reign in Israel. 41 Jehoshaphat son of Asa became king of Judah in the fourth year of Ahab king of Israel.
42 He was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-five years. His mother was Azubah, the daughter of Shilhi. 42 Jehoshaphat was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-five years. His mother's name was Azubah daughter of Shilhi.
43 Jehoshaphat was a good king, following the example of his father, Asa. He did what was pleasing in the LORD's sight. During his reign, however, he failed to remove all the pagan shrines, and the people still offered sacrifices and burned incense there. 43 In everything he walked in the ways of his father Asa and did not stray from them; he did what was right in the eyes of the LORD. The high places, however, were not removed, and the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there.
44 Jehoshaphat also made peace with the king of Israel. 44 Jehoshaphat was also at peace with the king of Israel.
45 The rest of the events in Jehoshaphat's reign, the extent of his power, and the wars he waged are recorded in The Book of the History of the Kings of Judah. 45 As for the other events of Jehoshaphat's reign, the things he achieved and his military exploits, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah?
46 He banished from the land the rest of the shrine prostitutes, who still continued their practices from the days of his father, Asa. 46 He rid the land of the rest of the male shrine prostitutes who remained there even after the reign of his father Asa.
47 There was no king in Edom at that time, only a deputy. 47 There was then no king in Edom; a deputy ruled.
48 Jehoshaphat also built a fleet of trading ships to sail to Ophir for gold. But the ships never set sail, for they were wrecked at Ezion-geber. 48 Now Jehoshaphat built a fleet of trading ships to go to Ophir for gold, but they never set sail--they were wrecked at Ezion Geber.
49 At that time Ahaziah son of Ahab proposed to Jehoshaphat, "Let my men sail an expedition with your men." But Jehoshaphat refused the offer. 49 At that time Ahaziah son of Ahab said to Jehoshaphat, "Let my men sail with your men," but Jehoshaphat refused.
50 When Jehoshaphat died, he was buried with his ancestors in the City of David. Then his son Jehoram became the next king. 50 Then Jehoshaphat rested with his fathers and was buried with them in the city of David his father. And Jehoram his son succeeded him.
